So the fork is a Fox 36, but with triple crowns? Huh?

Yeah, exactly! It's much stiffer this way, and the performance increase is insane.

This is the prototype, not yet publicly available - very soon though! SO much stiffer. Lots. I found the flex in my 36 CSU was causing the bushes to bind on bigger impacts on the initial part of the travel, effectively rendering them rigid... The MORC feels like actual, real suspension. I could write more, but I'd...more

What would you like to know?! Mojo offset-reduction crowns (MORC) that are a modification kit for Fox 36. They use the same damper, spring and lowers - replaces the flexy/creaky CSU with adjustable crowns and stanchions. They are amazing, 10mm less travel than I had and it feels like 73% more suspensions and...more

I thought they only had it for the 40 at this point. How different is the front end stiffness compared to a single crown 36 and/or the 40?

I carry all that too, with a few extras like pump, old brake pads, zip ties and a few wee odds and ends that always come in handy. So I thought I'd just make it nice and neat and stick it all in a sweet glorified purse that also promotes my business on the side! That also leaves me with nothing on my body, unless...more

Water bottle in a Specialized cage with multi tool, small Race Face pouch with tire lever, CO2 cartridge and injector, tire plug with an extra and a tube duct taped to frame.
If I’m out for a big day or a race that doesn’t return to “home”, I use a vest with back plate (required in many “local” races) with a...more

To store all the coins I need to buy cake after a ride, then transport said cake back home again!

Or maybe it's to store all the essential kit for every ride on the actual bike, rather than on my body... What do you take, and how do you carry it, on every ride?

Megawesome! Cheers!

It's been a revelation for me, all these parts have come together to make a real functional dream machine. I honestly think this setup is suited for 90% of MTBers. No hassle, no worries, just ride and ride hard. It's been going strong nearly 3 years now, with some minor evolution.
